We have stayed here many times before and find it ideal for exploring Ayrshire. The room is like any Premier Inn room and is very clean and in good condition. There is plenty of free on site parking which is also welcome. The restaurant is a "Thyme" restaurant and services a menu of good pub grub type favourites. The breakfast... More

However at 1am in the morning a wedding part arrived by coach and from then until about 4pm the noise levels in the hotel were terrible. On checking out the next morning we mentioned... More

You know what you're getting at a premier inn, and this one was no different. Room very new and clean. No rooms with bath, all showers. We couldn't book for 2 adults and 2 children, but they were happy for us to book 1 child and then bring our own travel cot for the baby. Restaurant staff all very friendly,... More

This is a typical Premier Inn, great convenient location, clean up to date rooms, great friendly staff. I arrived late in the evening, just before the restaurant closed, the menu was a bit restrictive due to having run out of some items, bot non the less had a good meal, breakfast was good. I would recommend the hotel

Everything was a usual, good value, but there was no salmon available that night but the chef made me a vegetarian pasta as there wasn't a vegetarian dish I fancied on the menu.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The going's always good at the Premier Inn Hotel Ayr/A77 Racecourse. With great road, rail and air links, you'll be living it up or getting down to business in no time. Back a winner at the home of the Scottish Grand National and William Hill Gold Cup. Zip into Glasgow to see the sights. Get into the swing at some of the country's most famous and historic golf courses: Royal Troon and Turnberry. And when all the racing around is done, return to our friendly team, spacious rooms and super-comfy beds. Directions: From the North - join the M8 (signposted Greenock, Glasgow Airport, Kilmarnock). Leave the M8 at Junction 22, then join the M77 (signposted Kilmarnock, Prestwick Airport). Continue forward onto the A77 (signposted Kilmarnock, Prestwick Airport, Ayr, Stranraer). At Dutch House roundabout take the 1st exit onto A77 (signposted Ayr, Stranraer). At Whitletts roundabout take 4th exit onto Heathfield Road (signposted B743, Prestwick). Stay in right hand lane and turn right at the first set of traffic lights just after car showrooms onto Wheatpark Road then take 1st right onto Whearpark Place. Hotel entrance is straight ahead. ... more   less
